These stem from 1900 to 1902, so I imagine this is before Billy Murray came into the group. The group here in question (there were tons of "American Quartets" according to internet postings about the group) in this collection split between Negro spirituals, goofy songs and plays. Some of the humor is very broad, some of it just whizzed over my head and some of it is downright racist. But this nevertheless was a very entertaining listen.
